Opera < 11.61 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 57751

Synopsis

The remote host contains a web browser that is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Opera installed on the remote Windows host is earlier than 11.61 and is, therefore, potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Same-origin policy restriction can be bypassed via specially crafted web content and HTML frames manipulation. (Issue #1007)

- An error in local file access restrictions can allow malicious websites to determine the presence of local files. Note that the content of local files are not disclosed and an attacker would need to guess the path of a file in order to determine if the file is present.
(Issue #1008)

Solution

Upgrade to Opera 11.61 or later.
